A study on texture using a well worn wooden post. Probably done in a similar way many times on EPZ before but all comments welcome!

Put into B & W, cropped slightly and sharpened on Elements 7.

Well spotted detail .Looks good mono...JT
Lovely texture and a nice gritty treatment. I'd sugest cropping it from the bottom up to the corner line, as the part below this line feels like a separate part of the image, and losing it would concentrate more on the strong diagonal comp. Nice work
Technically, very good. Not any lasting value though, just a lump of old wood. That sounds nasty I know, and as a technical exercise, it's excellent. For me, as a picture, it is a piece of wood.
Thanks for all the comments. It's definately just an old piece of wood but was trying to play around with contrast and a few other things as a technical exercise. No offence taken Still learning so it's always useful to hear opinions.
I like it like it is actually... you could crop it off as suggested but it would become very dullif you did. I think the fact that it breaks from the predictable is what makes this more interesting... but then it's all down to creativity and one individual's ability to explore and express over another's, isn't it... some have it, whilst others sadly don't. The contrast adds a lot to the image, and far from cropping off the lower part of the image, the direction of the grain complements that at the top, (left of centre) where the beam is split.
